5 for Friday

Friday, October 24, 2014
I'm so excited to be linking up again for 5 for Friday...I have been missing out on this for way too long.  It has been a wonderful week and I can't wait to share about it:
First off tell us about your week and link on up with Kacey by clicking the link below:
This week was AWESOME!!!!
First I introduced the fun pumpkin chair pocket REWARD!!!!  I picked up a cute pumpkin chair cover at the Dollar Tree store and introduced it to my students.  I told them that I will be looking for kids on task, engaged, participating with role model behavior to have it on their chair.  Throughout the day I look for a student that is deserving of it. ( I move it around every hour or so ).  At the end of the day whoever has it on their chair can go to the Treasure chest.  They LOVE it and it's perfect to keep their behavior in check until Halloween. 
It's working like a charm!!!
My room mom did this with my Franken Rhyme Pack craft:
On a personal note my #3 was extra special:
Every year our high school has a volleyball game for the CURE.  It's all in honor of breast cancer awareness. I'm team mom and made the bows for the girls...they sure looked great!  Here my boy and I are heading out ready to cheer my daughter on!!!
We have been studying spiders and making anchor charts from non fiction text.  Today we pulled out the main idea and details and turned that into a spider craft...this equals FUN for my kiddos!
My last little bit of fun is the brand new multiplication pack I made this week:  It has a RHYME for EVERY fact 2's - 12's.  You can pick it up { here }
Here are some sample pages:
